Stage 1: Backyard Buddies

Stage 1: Backyard Buddies

Students can learn so much by exploring living things in their own backyards. They will be challenged to apply their understanding of the needs of all living things and if they could provide help to living things in order to aide their survival. During the Taronga Zoo workshop, your students will meet a variety of native Australian animals. Many of these creatures are able to be found in their backyards, local parks, reserves or even in the schoolyard. Students will learn how to discover and identify common garden invertebrates and how to create habitats for local native animals.
